Despite the chill in the air, it’s not too early to start thinking about summer projects—a backyard makeover, perhaps? Your backyard is the place where your children play and your dog runs and, most importantly, it provides the view you see each day from your indoor/outdoor room. These three backyard additions will easily transform your outdoor space:
1. Add lights.
Light is an easy and chic way to transform any space, whether indoors or outdoors. Try hanging some string lights around the perimeter of your backyard or along your fence. This type of lighting will completely transform your backyard come nightfall, making it party-ready.
2. Install a tire swing.
This idea might sound silly, but it might make more of a difference than you think. First of all, tire swings are fun for adults and kids alike. Whether you’re reading a book while sitting in it or simply swinging along, tire swings appeal to just about everyone. Secondly, tire swings don’t have to be made out of boring old black tires. Did you know that you can paint your tire to look however you want?
3. Build a fire pit.
Is there anything more comforting than sitting around a warm fire with those you love, making s’mores and sharing stories? A fire pit will provide entertainment for you and your family all through the summer and well into fall. Not only are fire pits fun, they also can transform your entire outdoor space.
